    personally neither but it depends on what you actually want to do with the camera (apart from take pics)
    do you want a compact or a full DSLR?

    also are you going to be wanting to remove the len's for better shots? and how much are you willing to pay?

    I'm just wanting to take pictures, I haven't got much knowledge in photography and need a camera because I'm going to shows and forgetting the cars etc

    I've got a budget of £200 and seen them last night, I can also get the PANASONIC-DMC-TZ6EB-K a little bit cheaper from comet it that would be better for me

    Finepix every time. Fuji finepix bridge cameras are very well rated. Check www.dpreview.com and see if theres a review on it.

    Having had a Fuji bridge camera in the past I would fully recommend them. Very good camera's for the money.
    On paper the Kodak does seem better spec'd, but never used one in the past to comment.

    EDIT, if you can wait there is a new model coming out. Can pre-order it for £200 - S2500HD

    Also have a look for a S200EXR, 2nd hand about £250. Looks more like an SLR, with a proper manual zoom, rather then being controlled by a button.
    IMO they are much better to use, makes the camera feel more like an SLR.

    I got a canon sx20 is a few months back. Cost me £250 with a cashback offer from cannon and has been a very good camera for me so far, works well when just set in auto but has quite a few features if you want to try something a little more technical.

    Few recent snaps

    As other have stated i dont hink you will go far wrong with a Fuji Finepix.

    Ive got a S5000 non DSLR when it was new it was one of the best non DSLRs on the market. Its a great point and shoot camera with the faciltiy to set some custom settings and you can buy add on telephoto lenses aswell as filters etc

    Ive just swapped now to a full DSLR Canon EOS1000 alot more complex and not easy for a first timer esp if you have little experience of photography.

    Though ive got my new camera i want get rid of my old faithfull fuji.
